It's been an exciting few weeks at Connexus. We have loved the conversation around Thrive! We're completely pumped about families who have decided to live with margin and live on mission. It's a big weekend as our Orillia campus brings their Thrive offering Sunday. Can you imagine what happens when hundreds of families decide to live on mission?
Fill out your Thrive Commitment Card (we'll have copies on campus too) and then bring your Thrive Offering. The Thrive offering consists of:
A one time gift. We are simply asking people to bring their best – a one time over and above gift to help Connexus Thrive.
A Thrive increase – A weekly or monthly increase in your normal level of giving.
Together these gifts can help us reach an unprecedented number of people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ in 2011 and be a church that unchurched people love to attend.
So what's our goal? It's simple:
Our goal is to have every family participate. Put simply, we want you to participate.
Not just because of what it will do for us collectively at Connexus, but because of what it will do for you. I believe it will grow your faith, grow your trust and grow your confidence in God. And when you look back on your life and the hundreds – even thousands of lives – your investment has changed, you’ll be so thankful you did. By the way…if you're nervous about inviting your friends…have some faith. First time guests last weekend in Barrie LOVED the service. So take some risks and invite some friends!
Barrie friends, if you missed last weekend or haven't made your Thrive commitment yet – bring it this weekend. We'll give you an opportunity to do so. Also, we're launching our Easter series. It's going to be a unique look into the heart of salvation. Don't miss it!
The Cost | Nothing is Free (Carey Nieuwhof)
Salvation is free…or is it? It always seems confusing. There’s a world of difference between being ‘free’ and being ‘free to us’. There is something that should happen inside all of us when we realize that while something may be free to us, it actually wasn’t free.

Thrive | Part Three: Mission Possible (Carey Nieuwhof)
